DHAKA, Bangladesh — Lejo Sibbel is not a man of many words. But his sense of resolution is obvious, as is his enthusiasm for the Better Work Programme for which he is senior design adviser at the International Labour Organization country office for Bangladesh.
Hailed as one of the transformative initiatives for the industry last October, Better Work was launched after the labor law package was passed by the Bangladesh Parliament. In association with the International Finance Corporation and funded by several countries, including the U.S. and Netherlands, the initiative is an ILO-driven focus on making factories more compliant and competitive.
Alberta Ferretti's "Rainbow Week" sweaters are back. The designer closed her #MFW show with a few day-of-the-week sweaters, which first debuted on the catwalk last January as part of the pre-fall 2017 collection. #wwdfashion (📷: @delphineachard)
